labor and standardized production are some of 
the factors which make our products superior. 

In addition, factory facilities make it possi- 
ble for us to keep standard products in stock 
ready for shipment and installation. This elimi- 
nates delay which frequently occurs when the 
old method of field construction is relied upon. 

Here is a partial list of the concrete products 
manufactured by us:

Massey Standard 
Culvert and Sewer Pipe 

REINFORCED concrete pipe of our design 
has proved itself the most popular form of 
construction for a wide variety of uses, includ- 
ing railway and highway culverts and drains 
and sewers of all kinds. 

The principal points of superiority are its 
low cost, ease of installation, absence of main- 
tenance expense, and long life due to the elim- 
ination of hazard from fire, corrosion, electroly- 
sis, etc. The reinforcement is placed in a single 
line located in the region of tension throughout.

Culvert Pipe 

Massey Reinforced Concrete Pipe with Bell and Spigot Joint, 
18-84 in. Diam. 

This pipe is built in three standard classes. 
The earliest and most widely known form is the 
Class "B" pipe which is the standard pipe for 
railway culverts and cattle passes. 

This pipe is favored for railway use on ac- 
count of the ease with which a culvert can be 
put in place, thereby eliminating costly inter- 
ruptions to train service. Its use also has the 
important advantage of eliminating the expen- 
sive field mixer plant with the necessary ma- 
terial storage, chutes or wheelbarrow runways 
and a big gang. In one of the illustrations on 
the opposite page, a concrete culvert is being 
laid on a new line by four men with a chain 
hoist. 

In addition to the Class "B" we are pre- 
pared to furnish Class "A" and Class "AA" pipe. 
These classes may be used where conditions 
warrant for electric railway culverts, highway 
culverts and sewers. The three classes men- 
tioned above are available in sizes ranging from

Sewer Pipe 

Massey Reinforced Concrete Pipe with Tongue and Groove Joint, 12-66 in. 

Diameter 

12 inches to 84 inches in diameter, the sizes 
up to 48 inches being made in 8-foot lengths 
and the larger sizes in 6-foot lengths. 

The detailed dimensions and weights of 
the various classes and sizes are shown in the 
accompanying drawings and tables. 

For highway culvert work our concrete 
pipe has important advantages. It is low in 
first cost, and requires very little time to in- 
stall, as the trench need not be kept open 
longer than the time required to fill it. 

Call on us for full information regarding 
any problems in the use of culverts or sewer 
pipe which you may have under consideration. 
We will co-operate gladly.

Massey Concrete Houses 




i 






- — i 



.ORTABLE concrete houses 
can be adapted to a wide 
variety of uses, such as 
telephone booths, switch- 
men's houses, oil houses, 
cable test houses, station 
houses and transformer 
stations. They are cast 
in one piece with adequate 

reinforcement. They can readily be picked up 

and moved to any desired location. 

These portable concrete houses are compara- 
tively low in cost, permanent, practically indes- 
tructible, and require little or no maintenance. 
They are attractive in appearance, being fin- 
ished in a natural cement color on the outside, 
and can be furnished with a special white acid- 
proof paint on the inside if desired. 

The illustrations show a few of the standard 
designs with their drawing numbers. There are 
in addition other standard sizes and styles en- 
abling you to make a selection to meet any usual 
requirement. Write for full information.

For telegraph and transmission lines it is 
important to note that the capacity of a line can 
be greatly increased by the use of these poles 
without reducing the factor of safety. Cross 
arms can be applied by bolting in gains on the 
pole and bracing them in the same manner as 
on a wooden pole. 

Concrete trolley poles of the Massey design 
are low in first cost, they are not affected by 
electrolysis and require no painting. A most 
attractive finish and absolutely durable con- 
struction are provided in the ornamental light- 
ing pole. In some cases it is feasible to combine 
the railway and lighting poles with obvious 
economy. 

The data which we have on experimental 
tests of these poles will be sent to any one inter- 
ested in pole construction.

Battery Wells and Boxes

*A wells are now accepted as 
^ standard on most of the 
large railways. They are

efficient means of housing 
electric equipment and to-

they form a system which 
is easily and quickly in-

Massey Reinforced Concrete 
Bridge Slabs and Piling 

AILWAY engineers are fast 
coming to a full realization 
of the importance of re- 
placing their wooden and 
metal structures with re- 
inforced concrete as rapid- 
ly as they require renewal. 
This eliminates repaint- 
ing, repairing, and post- 
pones renewal indefinitely. 

The use of factory -made con- 
crete bridge slabs, piling, and trestle bents is more econom- 
ical than field work and provides a stronger, better struc- 
ture. The first cost is lower and the amount of labor 
required for construction is materially reduced. 

Factory -made bridge units are produced under ideal 
conditions for making reinforced concrete. This eliminates 
practically the only valid objection that has ever been 
raised to the use of concrete construction, the difficulty 
of getting uniform quality in every batch of concrete and 
the correct placing of reinforcement. 

In addition to the high quality of our bridge units, 
the time and labor required to erect a concrete bridge of 
the factory-made type is materially less than for any 
other type of permanent structure.

The standard Massey bridge slab is de- 
signed for Cooper's E-60 loading and can be 
furnished in lengths up to 24 ft. The use of 
these slabs is not confined to pile trestle 
construction. They can be applied equally 
well on pier trestles and culverts. We have 
developed a lighter design for the ballasted 
floor of steel bridges which is also applicable 
for the floor of concrete arch bridges, where 
the slabs are supported on the spandrel 
walls. These slabs are easily handled

by a derrick, making installation rapid and 
labor costs low. A small gang can do this 
work, which is an important factor. 

Massey reinforced concrete piling is being 
extensively used as standard construction on 
many railways and is being regularly accepted 
by the United States government. Its use 
produces a very economical trestle construction. 
It is also in wide use as foundation piling and 
is equally advantageous in this field. The un- 
retouched photograph on page 18 demonstrates 
that these piles can be driven without brooming. 

Send for complete information on Massey 
factory-made bridge units. We can offer sug- 
gestions that will mean 
a more economical bridge 
budget in the future.
